It me again! Problem, I have a home network consisting of 4 computers.1 Win 98, 1 Win 2000 Pro, 2 Win XP. When connecting to my Win 2000 machine it always ask for a sign on and or password (depending on which other machine i am connecting from.) How do I remove this from my Win 2000 machine? I have searched the control panel and am either over looking the settings or just don't understand Win 2000 enough to figure it out. Can anyone help?

Press CTRL+ALT+DEL and go to Change Password. Although I doubt you can fill in a blank password for Win2k. If you want the machine to automatically sign in upon booting, you'd best use Tweakui.

Follow the instructions there to install it, then Tweakui will live in Control Panel. You can set through there to automatically logon upon system bootup.

I should make myself a little more clear. I have no problem when signing on and booting up my Win 2000 machine. The problem is when I try to access my Win 2000 machine from any other machine on my network it ask me to login or enter password. The problem arises for instance, when i try to print to my printer on my Win 2000 machine it will not automatically find and access the printer because I first have log on or enter password to access my Win 2000 machine.I want to be able to access my Win 2000 machine from anywhere on my network without having to use a logon or password. When accessing my other computer on my network I am not asked to do anything. I will just automatically go there.

Try the following method.

For every machine you have on your network, create a user/password combo on your Win2k box.
So for the Win98 machine User/pass, you need the same User/pass on the Win2k box.
Do the same for the accounts on your XP boxes.
Assign the permissions you feel necessary and then reboot all the machines.

Now log into your regular account on the Win2k box and never worry again Grin

If you need assistance on how to add the combos I mentioned, don't hesitate to post back and we'll talk you through it, step by step Smiley
